A guest speaker from the Newport Polo Team will address the alumni clubs and provide a background on the history of polo and a quick lesson on how to follow the match.
THIS IS A POTLUCK EVENT!
While some clubs are bringing the tent and table, and others doing food set-up and clean-up, we are asking Columbians to please bring a scrumptious dish or refreshing beverage to share.
DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR LAWN CHAIR!
General Admission for Adults is $12; 15 and under are free.
Tickets may be purchased at the main gate or purchased in advance by clicking here.
The match is 2 hours in duration, but feel free to join us at any time between 3 and 7 p.m.!
